Detective Pikachu 2 Release Date: Who Are the Expected Cast Members in It?

In 2019, the first Detective Pikachu film surprised and delighted audiences around. It’s easy to see why a Pokemon sequel was approved; the film features adorable stuffed animals on par with Baby Yoda, an emotionally resonant plot, and vibrant cinematography.

Detective Pikachu 2 Release Date: Will There Be Pokemon Detective Pikachu 2?

According to thedigitalfix, Detective Pikachu has not yet been given a release date. In 2023, it was announced that there would be a sequel to the film that had been released in January 2019.

After a long period of silence, we finally have some news that suggests progress is being made: Portlandia co-creator Jonathan Krisel is apparently in discussions to helm Detective Pikachu 2.

As pre-production doesn’t appear to have begun in earnest, we should probably expect to wait at least two years for Detective Pikachu 2.

The director for the second “Pokémon Detective Pikachu” film has been captured. Legendary Entertainment is in talks with “Portlandia” co-creator Jonathan Krisel to direct the follow-up to 2019’s live-action “Pokémon” film. The scriptwriter is Chris Galletta.

Detective Pikachu 2 Cast Members: Who Are in It?

The cast of Detective Pikachu 2 has not been announced. We can expect this announcement to come in due time, following the conclusion of director negotiations.

Justice Smith herself is unsure of the star’s return in Detective Pikachu 2: “I don’t know if there is going to be a reunion.” I’ve heard whispers that they’re planning a sequel, but I have no idea if I’m included.

We anticipate the return of Justice Smith, Kathryn Newton, and possibly Ryan Reynolds. Notwithstanding Newton and Reynolds’ commitments to their Marvel Cinematic Universe roles, this is a sizable franchise in its own right.

Ryan Reynolds played Pikachu/Harry in the film, with Will Smith of DnD playing the lead character, Tim, and Ant-Kathryn Man’s Newton playing his love interest, Lucy. By the end of the first film, Harry gets transferred back to his human form from Pikachu, so possibly his role would be reduced.

Detective Pikachu 2 Plotline: What Can We Expect From It?

The storyline for Detective Pikachu 2 is yet unknown. For the moment, details regarding the story, and indeed about anything else, are scant. We probably won’t learn anything about the plot until production on the film has progressed further.

Maybe Tim and Harry can work together to solve some murders, or maybe Tim and Lucy and Pikachu, who no longer speaks English, continue their quest for adventure. Since Pikachu is part of the title, it is expected that he will appear.

The information regarding Detective Pikachu 2 has stopped there. Not much, but we’re working on it and will let you know as soon as we hear anything new.

Justice Smith, the show’s star, said in an interview that year, “I think we have to just kind of bury our dreams,” and there were no more updates that suggested improvement.
